Tim Gunn said it best in his book, Tim Gunn's Fashion Bible: The Fascinating History of Everything in Your Closet, when he wrote: "The 1960's were the golden age for women's boots. André Courréges introduced white leather boots around the same time as the miniskirt, and they proved the perfect match for the era's futuristic look. Nancy Sinatra's 1966 hit, 'These Boots Were Made For Walkin'' helped establish the go-go boot as a symbol of female power."
Women's boots have a sort of super power and we cannot get enough of it. What we love about this trend in the 1960's and 1970's were that the coolest of the cool girls wore them, often with their controversial mini skirts and crop pants. The specific boots we are paying tribute to this time are the calf high, low heel, mod, go-go boots. Stay tuned for boots just like these to go up on our site soon. In the mean time, take a trip back in history to appreciate all those super cool women who took fashion risks to pave the way to modern badasses.
